“The Prague Symphony, whose home is at the Smetana Hall of the Municipal House, are rarely to be found at the Rudolfinum. They certainly found the change of scene both inspirational and refreshing. But the main reason they played with a degree of motivation and excellence that is rarely heard was clearly the conductor, with her ability to inspire, lead and command with subtlety. Her festival debut was energetic and expressive, admirably authoritative at the very end, yet the music had plenty of room to breathe.” (Prague Spring Debut, May 2023, Prague Symphony Orchestra)
